Strathmore Artist Papers  Paper is our art form & we celebrate artists. We've kept the tradition of creating beautiful fine art papers alive for over 125 years. #strathmoreart

:: TONED GRAY MIXED MEDIA ::
Why use Toned paper?
Starting your artwork using mid-range colored paper allows for unique sketching & drawing possibilities by providing the middle value that would otherwise need to be rendered by the artist. A wider range of values from light to dark can be used, and the middle tone makes it easier for the artist to deliberately place shadows and highlights.

Keeping the value of the paper as one of the values in the drawing not only saves time, but allows the artist to use graphite or other dark media to push darker values and white pencils or other light media to add highlights, making sketches and drawings pop.
Our Toned papers are 100% recycled, contain 30% post-consumer fiber, and also contain kraft and bark fiber inclusions which adds visual interest.

When we were developing our Toned Mixed Media paper, we made this experimental landscape piece to see how it would perform with soft pastels. Tough job doing art in the office!

As it turns out, we were happy with the results! The paper has a vellum drawing finish which makes it great for blending. It has less tooth than a traditional pastel textured sheet, so ultimately it would come down to artist preference and your blending style. The less-textured surface makes it great for adding details with pencils, colored pencils and pen & ink.
Our Toned Mixed Media comes in neutral Tan, Gray and Blue which allows light and dark values to stand out on the paper. Aside from dry media, it’s also great for wet media applications like watercolor, gouache, acrylic, and markers due to the internal sizing and heavy weight of the paper at 184lb (300gsm). #strathmore #strathmorepaper #strathmoreart #tonedpaper #tonedgray #tonedmixedmedia #graypaper #tonedart #pastel #softpastel #pastelart #pastelpainting #landscape #landscapeart #landscapepainting #mixedmedia #mixedmediapaper #royaltalens
